    What's with the disparity in published crude oil future prices? & seeking alpha have a $44 handle, Comex, Bloomberg and CNBC have a $42 handle. Are different web sites publishing different months future prices?

  • Inventory Build May End Sooner Than Expected, Cushing May Not Fill - Impact On WTI [View article]
    "As memory serves, there are 42 gallons of gas per barrel of crude,"

    Isn't a barrel of crude 42 gallons of crude oil? Refineries in the United States produce an average of about 12 gallons of diesel fuel and 19 gallons of gasoline from one barrel (42 gallons) of crude oil.

    I'm not sure if your math was correct and you just mis-spoke the gallons of gasoline per barrel of crude.

  • Chicago PMI dives into contraction [View news story]
    This number is so bad that it suggests no rate hikes for as far as the eye can see and even a glimmer of hope for a new round of QE. That of course would be good news for stocks in general and consequently the futures numbers barely moved. Bad news is good news again.

    So sad, lots of fond memories of going to RSH when I was a teenager and buying electronics kits & parts with the money I made from mowing lawns.

  • McDonald's reports 3.3% slide in comp sales for Q3 [View news story]
    Lots of "Gourmet" burger chains springing up in my area over the last several years. One of the first (and best IMO) is "Five Guys", where you can buy a single-patty burger with your choice of 18+ toppings for around $4. Although this burger may be slightly smaller than some competitors, the freshness, flavor and price pretty much blows away the Big Mac & 1/4 pounder.

    Chipotle Mexican Grill also has menu offerings that offer stiff competition in terms of flavor, freshness & price.

  • IBM takes down futures [View news story]
    The reason IBM's miss moved the futures market so much is because holders of many other blue chip, financially engineered companies stock just realized that at some point stock buybacks financed with debt issuance have to be backed up by organic growth...and if they are not, they are worth a lot less.

  • Bullard suggests delaying end to QE [View news story]
    They are just goosing the market higher on especially down days with rumors of more QE. That's why the futures tanked even more this am after the low unemployment number - no bad news or hope for QE there.

  • Airline stocks headed for more heavy losses [View news story]
    Quote: "We believe there is scientific and epidemiologic evidence that Ebola virus has the potential to be transmitted via infectious aerosol particles both near and at a distance from infected patients, which means that healthcare workers should be wearing respirators, not facemasks."

  • Airline stocks headed for more heavy losses [View news story]
    "an illness that's not even airborne".

    There were some findings from The Center for Infectious Disease Research and Policy (CIDRAP) disclosed today that it may in fact be possible for ebola to be transmitted via the air. That story was released at about the same time the S&P broke support in the afternoon and the airline stocks started selling off after that.

    CIDRAP is a global leader in addressing public health preparedness and emerging infectious disease response. Founded in 2001, CIDRAP is part of the Academic Health Center at the University of Minnesota.

  • Retuers: Banks under regulatory scope over auto lending [View news story]
    Perhaps a case where regulators trying to get ahead of the curve confuses everyone, as we are used to them regulating from the rear view mirror after the accident.
